Proud to announce that my good friend and mechanic Arron Stump at 316 Motorworks has finished building his latest and by far the most advanced, professional, and totally awesome rally car.

 

 

The Story so far.

Now.

2004 WRX STi 316 Motorworks & IMO Fab Rally Team

 

The car is running a experimental heavy deck 2.0 block from japan that they will be testing (Only 5 made I believe)

Currently running a VF-34 Turbo at 25Psi and the reason for the high psi is because he just got sponsored by Garret Turbos and they will be suppling him with a Rally Potato turbo ($5000+) that will replace it as soon as it goes. Custom fuel cell running 109-110 octane. Fully custom interior with iPad to view car information and wirelessly control goPros around the vehicle. Current power is 320whp and 400ft-lbs torque, this will dramatically change with new turbo. Every aspect of the vehicle is either brand new or fully rebuilt the car has 44miles on it.

 

Him and his team of 5 will be leaving tomorrow (Sunday Jan. 19th 2014) to their first event at Sno* Drift Rally America in Michigan on Jan. 24th 2014 to compete in the Open Class. The car will be driven by Hawk Miller who has competed in numerous under class rallies but this will be his first major rally. Their co-driver is Mustafa Samli who has 30 years of co-driving experience and has competed in the World Rally Championship as well as Rally America events.

that's a pretty legitimate build.

does he have any footage of the car in events?

 

I would love to see it in action.

after Formula 1 and the NHRA, the WRC is one of my favorite pastimes. do we not have a thread in this forum devoted to like global Rally chat?

because if not, we need one :rah:

Thanks and no this car was build in 72 days by 1-4 people, and everything is either rebuilt or brand new so the car only has 44 miles on it haha. Its first event will be Open Class Sno* Drift. You can see in the video links that the original rally car was destroyed (Rolled 6 times at 80mph) 

 

So we should have lots of great footage after the rally which I can post here.

That's a really impressive looking piece of kit.
Do you have any full pictures of the cage? I was going to comment that the front of the crash structure seemed a little far back to offer any leg protection but now I'm not so sure, particularly in this picture:

You can see the box section of the cage at the bottom but I'm a little puzzled as to where the forward tube goes? It looks like it just disappears into the dash under the A-pillar but in the other images it looks like there's an A-pillar bar. Just a trick of the light?

The cage was custom made in house and they moved the X bar at the door slightly back to make for easier access.

 

more pictures of cage area.

That's much clearer, thanks. Interesting to have two sets of X-bars; I'm not doubting the strength of such a set-up or second-guessing local motorsport regulations but in the UK I'm not sure that would be MSA-approved; their diagrams for permissible additional bracing beyond the basic cage frame only specify a single X-brace between the A and B pillars.

All I know about that is that the inspector from Rally America hardly had to look at it before he said it was one of the finest cages he'd ever seen. Its super reinforced just about everywhere.

Like I said, it's not knocking the design in any way, I just think it's quite unusual and contrasts quite starkly with many of the cage diagrams that the MSA provide for competitors.

you can tell it's a custom American job from the angles of the weld points.

it's not uncommon to see multiple forward cross bars in US rally.

Sorry I cant be more of a help I know my share about the car but that gets a little specific for me. I know that he got his base cage diagram from a Professional Rally team and rally car builder that has been in it for a long time. He put his own touch on it and added a lot of extra reinforcement throughout the whole car.
